What are those circular tracks of land on Google Earth?
If you look up Blue Ridge, ND on google earth you will see may green round tracks of land. They look very odd and do not make any sense. Curious what they are?
Without looking at Google Earth, I can tell you that those “green round tracks” are circular plots of land watered by “center pivot irrigation.”

How to buy multiple licenses of Google Earth Pro
Is it possible if I can view an incident on google earth that occured at a certain time?
My dad’s car got broke into and we want to view it on google earth. There is an option so we can change the time, but that option is blocked. So what is the oldest version of google earth available.
Google earth doesn’t operate on real time video feeds or anything like that. It is made up of satellite images and the odds of you seeing someone breaking into a car from a satellite and being able to identify the person is slim to none. Good luck with that.
